The new Bush School upper campus expansion pays respect to the school’s historic Gracemont academic building (visible in the foreground) in materiality, massing and siting. This modern interpretation of a masonry and wood structure leverages mass timber elements to create an efficient, low-carbon building for the next 100 years.
